  • Doing community outreach
  • Fundraising & Grant writing
  • Organizational Development
  • Communications & Social Media

In addition to supporting the community, there are other perks that come with volunteering at Kickstand. Please note that we require volunteers to contribute a minimum of 5 hours per month in order to access these perks:

  • Free workshops on bike mechanics, anti-oppression, bike art and more
  • Discounts on new and used parts
  • Free shop time on volunteer night (every Thursday from 7-9 pm, and Saturday from 10 am – 3 pm)
